My name is Matthew Coppersmith
I am a maker or artist or woodworker creating pieces with a mix of wood, metal, resin, and other miscellaneous items. I combine these materials to create one cohesive piece of furniture. Showcasing their individual characteristics and beauty. I currently mill all my own lumber. I want to give those trees the chance to live on as something else. I find that I see this in many things a piece of broken and discarded metal, a chunk of rock. I see these things and I am immediately figuring out how to give these things new life.
I consider myself to be self-taught in all aspects of woodworking, metalworking, and resin. Meaning I don’t have any formal education. I owe a lot to YouTube and the friends I have made.
I believe in my children, they are the reason for ALL the emotions!
I believe in woodworking to fill my bucket!
I believe in making mistakes, it's how we learn!
What I believe
"Sometimes it is not about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, it’s finding the tunnel in the first place!"
Guilty Pleasures & Truths
-You can do anything because YouTube!
